Mexico, Day Three.
La Paz and Punta Arena at the mouth of La Ventana.

Found the perfect beach today and saw my first roosterfish of the trip. Got a shot off at a brace of matching roosters, the largest I’ve ever seen, both fish well over fifty pounds! They were chasin’ meter long needle fish right up to the beach! My first thought was, shit, I need a bigger rod-all I brought was two ten weights. My five inch EP mullet fly was dwarfed in the melee. I saw these same thugs cruisin’ the beach an hour later. They were extremely rude the second time around. The hunt continues…

Mexico, day Two
Tequila and vodka martinis with fresh pargo (snapper) for dinner. Sous chef, Lewis did fine knife work on the garlic, jalapeño, and cilantro.

Badlands

Revisited some old and familiar haunts yesterday, including an area we had not seen in 26 years-Horse-Tooth Hill. These deposits hold a rich diversity of Eocene mammal fossils (50-55 million years old). Took a bout an hour to collect five different species of mammals including the first horse (hyracotherium), a large hippo-like ungulate (coryphodon), some sort of rare carnivore, shrews and other unidentified small rodent-like mammals.
